“Quantity over quality..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

First visit to a Golden Corral and was frankly amazed that they can stay in business. Went for Breakfast but it was practically empty. Service was ok, but range of food was staggering! Do people really want a fried chicken or steak option for breakfast? Or even a chocolate fountain or chocolate cake section? The amount of food for the amount of people was pretty disgusting. Food tastes ok, but not the highest quality. These restaurants do have a place, morning after maybe when you need a massive fry up, but Denny's far better food!

“Great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

When traveling in the US I usually tend to stick to the buffet style restaurants. I have tried most of the big chain ones but, surprisingly, I had never gone to the Golden Corral. This time I went not once, but twice, in one week. I found that, for the price, it beats the competition as far as the variety and quantity of food. The food was pretty flavorful also. I will definitely go visit again.
